PREP FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Falcons look to keep rolling this week


GOSHEN — SB Riley (0-1) at Northridge (1-0)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Series record: Northridge 4-0

Last meeting: Northridge 42-21 in 2010

The Tom Wogomon era began in Middlebury with a 14-7 win last Friday over South Bend Adams at School Field. The South Bend Riley Wildcats lost 34-27 in Week 1 at Whiteland.

The Raiders have never opened the season with back-to-back games against South Bend schools.

Northridge rushed for 143 yards and passed for 75 in the Adams contest. Both TDs were scored by 6-0 (171) senior quarterback Tanner Love on runs of 12 and 1 yards. Love connected on 5 of 13 passes for 75 yards.

Leading rushers for Northridge were 5-11 (173) junior Travis Schlabach with 89 yards on 21 attempts and 5-8 (185) classmate Cam Ridenour 33 on six. The top receiver was 6-0 (140) junior Payton Carson with one catch for 35 yards.

Northridge’s defense limited Adams to 78 yards on the ground and 68 via the pass.

Culver Military (1-0) at NorthWood (1-0)

Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

Series record: NorthWood 16-4

Last season: Culver Military 27-20

While NorthWood started the season with a 21-20 win over Jimtown, the Culver Military Academy Eagles recorded a 36-29 victory over Tippecanoe Valley.

“I liked the passion our kids played with last week,” NorthWood coach Scott Hoover said. “We executed fairly well and really only had a couple of bad plays. We lost a fumble and gave up a couple of long runs, but overall I was fairly pleased.

“Culver Military has some very athletic kids and they like to get them into positions where they can challenge you 1-on-1. On defense, they blitz a lot out of a 3-4. That’s one good thing about facing Jimtown last week. The Jimmies blitz a lot so we are fairly comfortable with our kids picking up the blitzes. Also (6-2, 205, senior quarterback) Will Kirkwood made some good reads about when to get rid on the ball.”

Kirkwood completed 14 of 19 passes for 165 yards against the Jimmies. He tossed a 20-yard scoring pass to 5-8 (170) sophomore Tanner Cleveland.

Kirkwood was the top rusher with 61 yards on 18 carries while Cleveland chipped in with 30 on 10.

The Panthers had 46 yards of penalties in Week 1.

“Besides taking away big plays on defense and holding on to the ball on offense we need to cut down on the dead-ball penalties,” the coach added.

  • Pyrenees please Nibali, Rogers in Tour Stage 16 BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France — The Pyrenees on Tuesday lived up to their reputation for causing ups and downs at the Tour de France: A French rider climbed in the standings, an American went down, and an Australian rebounding from an ordeal of doping suspicions won Stage 16 in a downhill breakaway. Riding in his 10th Tour, three-time world champion Michael Rogers of Australia won his first Tour stage behind savvy racing, well-paced riding and the absence of his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank leader Alberto Contador. The Spaniard crashed out in Stage 10, inadvertently freeing up Rogers to go after the stage win.
